Korean internet portal Naver is to introduce a mobile payments platform from June that will let users verify themselves using fingerprint recognition and make payments using their Naver ID, a password, the mobile number of the recipient and either a credit or debit card. “It has tied up with five credit card firms, including BC Card Co and Samsung Card Co, and is in talks with five major local banks to forge the partnership to provide Naver Pay,” Yonhap reports.
